    Device leaks come in all shapes and sizes. Yesterday's Galaxy S23 design leak was pretty massive, and it might take a while before something even more revealing of the Galaxy S23 series pops up online. Until then, we have a bit more information to share about the Galaxy S23 Ultra's primary camera.

    Our colleagues at GalaxyClub have recently confirmed through their sources that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 200-megapixel primary camera. If you follow our news feed, you probably know that rumors about the Galaxy S23 Ultra's alleged 200MP camera are nothing new. However, we now have stronger confirmation that Samsung is indeed planning to use a 200MP sensor for its next-gen premium flagship.

    Not all Galaxy S23 Ultra sensors will get a resolution upgrade

    Samsung was never in a rush to increase the resolution of mobile cameras, as it is a relatively fruitless endeavor. A high-resolution sensor gives a manufacturer some bragging rights but doesn't guarantee higher-quality images. Software and AI-driven image processing pay off much more than a higher pixel count nowadays, so there's always the question of whether or not Samsung's next flagship phone will increase camera resolutions.

    As far as the Galaxy S23 Ultra is concerned, the answer seems to be “yes,” but not across the board. The flagship will have a 200MP primary camera, even though other sensors, such as the 10MP 10x optical telephoto camera, will retain the same resolutions. Of course, we'll have to wait and see how these specs translate into real-world usage scenarios. As we've seen before when comparing the Galaxy Z Flip 4 with the Galaxy S22, Samsung is capable of getting surprisingly good results through software.
